Made in the USA
Since the founding of the company in 2006, “Made in the USA” has become the central policy behind Quick Mount PV’s ongoing efforts to bring job growth, security and sustainability to our environment, our economy, and the energy industry.
Jobs, Jobs, Jobs
Quick Mount PV takes great pride in manufacturing in America and in the state of California, and the jobs we create here are an integral part of our success. We work closely with the Workforce Development Board of Contra Costa County to supplement our hiring process, and our steady growth as a company has allowed us to expand our staff by at least 20% each year.
Knowing how and where our goods are manufactured gives us a high level of confidence in our sources of supply. We also make some components ourselves. For those parts and components we cannot manufacture in house, such as die-cast aluminum, aluminum extrusions, grade-8 bolts, 80% recycled cardboard, and stainless steel hanger bolts, we make sure to purchase from American manufacturers. Close knowledge of and proximity to our suppliers allows us to easily inspect the quality of our materials and carefully assess the environmental impacts of our manufacturing.
One of the easiest ways we’ve found to promote sustainability in all areas is to limit the use of imported goods, and therefore their transportation costs, as much as possible. By keeping trade mostly within the US, we lower our use of fossil fuels and help support jobs in American transportation companies. Staying close to home naturally cuts down on travel distance and lessens our carbon footprint. We also reduce reliance on new materials and supplies through our use of recycling and composting. We even grow our own vegetables in a community garden! For more information, see our Sustainability page.
